Gay group raise £400 for Worthing Charity

Graham Robson December 30, 2015

Members of The Arun Gay Society (TAGS) raised £400 from events in 2015 for The Guild Care of Worthing.


The Guild Care of Worthing supports over 3,000 local older people, carers, people with dementia, families with children with special needs and disabilities, older people with learning difficulties and encourages exercise and wellbeing for everyone over the age of 50.

TAGS was formed in 1982 out of the local branch of CHE (Campaign for Homosexual Equality), which had been meeting in Littlehampton for eight years. They operate primarily as a social group for the LGBT community in the southern part of West Sussex, but some members do come from much further afield.

They meet informally, usually twice each month, once in a seafront hotel bar in Worthing and the other times at member’s homes for coffee evenings or special laid-on parties.
